Somewhere in Brooklyn
Bruno Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

She was covered in leather and gold
Twenty one years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there

Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

Little miss perfect sitting at the train stop
Red Nike high tops listening to hip-hop
While we were waiting started conversating
Before I got her name along came a train

(uh) next stop Brooklyn
(uh) now I'm lookin'

She was covered in leather and gold
Twenty one years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

On the street kickin' rocks circling the same block
Green farm flat bush checking every corner shop
Tappin' people's shoulders askin' if they know her
Everyday's the same back to the train

(uh) next stop Brooklyn
(uh) I'm still lookin'

She was covered in leather and gold
Twenty one years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair, she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

Oh-oh-oh-oh
I wonder if we'll ever meet again
Oh-oh-oh-oh
I wonder we we'll ever meet again
Yeah I wonder if we'll meet again
I hope we do somewhere in Brooklyn

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "Somewhere in Brooklyn" by Bruno Mars tell the story of a young man who falls in love with a girl he meets at a train stop in Brooklyn. Despite having only had a brief conversation with her, he is captivated by her and spends his days searching for her on the same block and asking strangers if they know her. The lyrics are full of longing and hope that they will meet again, with the repeated refrain of "somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn" underscoring his determination to find her.


The opening line, "She was covered in leather and gold," immediately sets a tone of mystery and intrigue. The girl is described in a way that makes her seem exotic and glamorous, and the use of the word "lost" when the protagonist admits he can't find her creates a sense of urgency and desperation. The song's structure, with its repeated verses and refrains, reinforces the idea that the protagonist is stuck in a loop of searching and hoping.


Overall, "Somewhere in Brooklyn" is a romantic and nostalgic tribute to a lost love. Its depiction of a young couple brought together by chance and then separated by circumstance is a common theme in pop music, but Bruno Mars injects it with his signature charm and sincerity.

She was covered in leather and gold
21 years old
I lost her in the cold
It's unfair she's out there
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn
She's somewhere, somewhere, somewhere in Brooklyn

[Verse 1]
Little Ms. Perfect
Sitting at the train stop
Red Nike high tops
Listening to hip-hop
While we were waiting
Started conversating
Before I got her name
Along came a train

[Pre-Chorus:]
Oh, oh
Next stop Brooklyn
Oh, oh,
Now I'm lookin'

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
On the street kicking rocks
Circling the same block
Green point to Flatbush
Checking every corner shop
Tapping people's shoulders
Asking if they know her
Everyday's the same
It's back to the train

[Pre-Chorus:]
Oh, oh
Next stop Brooklyn
Oh, oh
I'm still looking

[Chorus]

[2x]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I wonder will we ever meet again

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I wonder if we ever meet again

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I hope we do
Somewhere in Brooklyn
